Farrakhan delivers stern warnings to America and its peopleBy Ashahed M. Muhammad -Asst. Editor- | Last updated: Mar 20, 2013 - 4:08:17 PM
“Those of you who have been tuning into this broadcast might be saying to yourself, especially over these last two, that the Minister is going very, very hard. The question is why? My beloved brothers and sisters and the people of America, we are in a danger zone,” the Minister said in the message, which aired March 16.
When there is danger present, such as a fire, the Minister said, one does not whisper, one speaks loudly and clearly enough so those in danger can hear the instructions and move quickly to safety.
“Yes the words are harsh, but the spirit behind those words is to try to save a great nation from its destructive fall, and to save a people who have been rebelling against the call of God to get up from the feet of our 400 year oppressors, unite, pool our resources and do something for self,” he said.
He referred to the Holy Qur’an, Surah (Chapter) 5, verse 67 wherein it reads: “O Messenger, deliver that which has been revealed to thee from thy Lord; and if thou do (it) not, thou hast not delivered His message. And Allah will protect thee from men. Surely Allah guides not the disbelieving people.”
“To deliver a message like the one that we are delivering, demands the protection of God, for the Messenger and the message,” said Min. Farrakhan. “For forty-four long years, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad preached this message of salvation and warning no matter what consequences he faced, no matter what threats came against his life, no matter who opposed what he said, he kept before the world, the message that Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi gave him to give to us, to America and the world.”
In the Holy Qur’an Chapter 20, Moses prayed to God for a helper. Moses was given a certain time among the people, and at the end of that appointed term, his helper Aaron was given the instruction to take his place among the people. Similarly, the Eternal Leader of the Nation of Islam, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, often asked for a helper, and for forty years faithfully delivered the message and worked the mission he was given. After forty years of suffering, being rejected, misunderstood, and mislabeled as a hate teacher, he departed but told the Minister that he would sit in his seat upon his departure to continue the work and mission.
“As my spiritual father Elijah Muhammad was faithful in delivering that message without fear of the enemy’s evil plans against him, I too am delivering that message,” said Minister Farrakhan. “I’m sorry that it’s preaching the doom of a world and the salvation of a people, nevertheless it is what must be taught in order that you know and understand the time and what must be done,” he added.
“I must do what I am commanded,” he said.
The Black people of America and the Western Hemisphere, that are victims of the worst slavery in the annals of history are the heirs to the Promised Land, and the wicked rulers will be judged, and the land taken from them, he announced.
“You have had sway over the Earth and its people, you have had power to set up your institutions of governance, your institutions of religion, your institutions of jurisprudence, your institutions of education, your institutions of economics—this is your world!” said the Minister. “You have done a pitiful job of cultivating the human being,” he said.
“Every prophet that came was teaching people into a spiritual civilization, and every prophet who came, Satan destroyed his work,” said the Minister. “As you have destroyed us, the God who is present is now destroying you.”
The Minister then read Matthew Chapter 24 Verse 34, which reads, “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”
“How many generations have passed since Jesus preached those words?” he asked. “It’s been 2,000 years. How many generations have come and gone since those words were uttered? Surely, it could not have been talking about the time of Jesus the prophet.”
The Minister said in the book of Daniel and Revelations, America is described as the “fourth beast, more terrible than any other.” The hour of the destruction of that beast has arrived, he said.
Holding up a copy of the book “The Fall of America” by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Minister recommended that all listening and viewing get a copy of it. Although written 40 years ago, the words are right on time.
“Every one of you scholars should get this book,” said Minister Farrakhan holding it up. “Get this book and study it because he gives you the clearest exegesis of the scriptures that foretell the fall of America and the destruction of this present world.”
After reading directly from the book at length dealing with Mr. Muhammad’s words regarding the forces of nature he said, “Since we’re on the time and what must be done, and the judgment, this is the best book that you could have in your library.”
“After hearing these things, the question I have to ask is: what are you going to do America?”
Separation is the best and only solution, he said. “Soon we will talk about what your presidents have said about separation. They were not integrationists,” said the Minister.
